Back to School… For Us All

By |2013-08-15T09:19:31-04:00August 15th, 2013|Fashion, Parenting|

Thus begins the ritual of starting off the new school year with pretty clothes that aren't quite faded yet, bookbags free of the mid-year foot smell and goldfish crumbs, and legitimately clean and styled hair. Because what else do I have to do at 6am? Certainly not body slam three kids into the bed so [...]

Children are like Poltergeist

Bedtime is a crap time for me. I've mentioned this before, but I experienced a traumatic event when I was a little girl in which I woke up to find a man cutting through my window screen with a knife. That basically ruined the whole sweet dreams situation for me, and led to an elevated [...]

Andy. Hero.

Andy and I have been sitting on the couches of our living room staring at a tv that is not on, in complete silence, for about 10 minutes. Aside from my tear filled "thank you," in the center of the restaurant, we haven't spoken since 12:o5pm Eastern Time. And I only know that because in [...]

The Call of the Commune

By |2017-06-14T16:08:14-04:00June 21st, 2013|Growing Up, Parenting|

I think one of the scariest parts of my marriage, for Andy, is the knowledge that I am always four seconds from being ready and willing to move to a commune. I blame my parents. There are entire photo albums of me laying on patchwork quilts on the grass next to five or six other [...]

This episode, we put a pause on the lady business, and welcomed a very brave group of boys to join our panel. We talked about living through childbirth, sex talks, Father's Days must haves and no thank yous, and so many more absolutely hysterical moments. Warning: If you are ovulating, by the end, you'll probably [...]

Toothless Kid Problems

A few weeks ago, Jude lost his front teeth. It was very dramatic, in that, he wouldn't pull them out and insisted that no one touch them whilst they hang there by a single vein making us all collectively barf our faces off every time he spoke to us. Then they fell out and I [...]

What You Know ’bout Rockin’ a Wolf on Your Noggin’

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are kinda a big deal in our house right now, and the album has been on repeat for over a month. Which is awesome because if you haven't seen a 4 year old in an Ariel dress rap? You haven't lived. Since we are a mere 3 days away from summer [...]

School’s Out. ALREADY!?

By |2013-05-17T10:41:41-04:00May 17th, 2013|Parenting|

This morning I got up and looked at the school calendar, as I am wont to do two hours before the start of school, and I exhaled a sigh of relief that I didn't have to come up with snack for twenty kids. Last month I sent Wyatt to class with a bag full of [...]
